Oh yes I was stressed 2000 feet to go warning came up. I was experimenting with flap setting at 5 with 65000 kgs of fuel. I won’t do that again!

Beautiful shots! That late rotation sure did give me the heebie-jeebies hahaha. By the way, I think your first picture didn’t load in properly:)

Normally I would be frustrated with someone flying a route like this with an unrealistic aircraft, but the Vietnam Airlines livery is soooo stunning that it’s justified in my book!
